Research plays a critical role in the development of a chemist, and TU strives to provide as many hands on laboratory projects as possible. Our college’s education model defines research as an inseparable component of TU’s undergraduate experience. Through a rich pool of resources and the diversity or our college’s research initiatives and faculty, the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry takes every opportunity to strengthen its program.
The department’s 10-week summer research experience, Chemistry Summer Undergraduate Research Program (CSURP), aligns with TU’s signature initiative, the Tulsa Undergraduate Research Challenge (TURC). Students engage in state-of-the-art research under the direct supervision of a faculty mentor while developing professional development skills and serving the Tulsa community.
TU’s small, comprehensive academic environment contributes to the success of CSURP. Research faculty members are inspired with new waves of creativity while working with bright, imaginative and eager students. Students receive individualized attention from their faculty mentors and are exposed to innovative research ideas in the inorganic, organic, physical, analytical/environmental and biochemical fields of chemistry. CSURP supports TU’s meaningful curriculum and provides students with a strong selection of promising career opportunities.
CSURP is available to all TU students. For more information about this program, please contact:
